We get all excited when he reels off a great run but depressed when he cannot get through his reads and find the open receiver, which is his main job. Good news. Bad news.
This upcoming season will be a big "salary test" season for BOTH Colin Kaepernick and Jim Harbaugh. If Harbaugh is to get the raise most people believe he wants (to be paid like other NFC West HCs), the 49ers will need to get past Seattle, and to do that, Kaepernick will have to be a better passer than he has been in the past. That means Harbaugh's future here depends on whether or not he can actually get Kaepernick to play like a big-time NFL QB, not just a running QB. If Harbaugh can do that, both will get a nice bump. If he can't...
Would love to hear the alternative.
"If he can't..." Go on. Tell us.
"Sign Ryan Fitzpatrick for cheap."?
What is the "then"?
lol i know huh Everyone thinks the grass is greener on the other side but many teams keep drafting "franchise QB's" and it seems like every year they implode. Jacksonville, Cleveland, Oakland, Vikings, hell even the Rams etc. Smh..people dont know how hard it is to draft a franchise QB and we finally have a good prospect to build around and we compare him to Montana in after 1.5yrs...umm
A QB, like Kap who i'snt simply one dimensional, lacking mobility, and ARM strength, but one improving as both a PP and devastating X-factor as a runner. Kap will get better next year BUT lets not pretend Kap was some horrible pocket passer when Ive seen him even early in 2012 make some of the most beautiful throws in the pocket as any QB! Hell, in the Wildcard game against GB in 2012, the 2012 NFCCCG in ATL, the SB comeback in 2012, and his PassRtg went way up when CRABS returned in our 9 game winning streak of 2013.
Also, many of u forget Kap is not just a typical "running QB", hes shown an ability to be very accurate at times ( needs better touch) and has a cannon to fit it downfield and sometimes into tight windows, but most importantly, HES PROBABLY THE FASTEST, most athletic QB in the league...making his running gifts a DYNAMIC weapon that 99% of teams cant duplicate. AND HE WILL only GET BETTER at being a PP and selective runner with having such thick skin and extreme confidence in himself!
